3V0623.01 [my daddy]: first recorded use of possessive modifier without hiatus and inverted order (see note #242) 10/7/79

With the picnic table newly set up in the kitchen, Peggy came walking
more or less cautiously down the bench to run to my arms. She put
her arms about my neck as I caught her and exclaimed [my daddy]. I
believe this is the first recorded use of a possessive modifier without a
hiatus and inverted order. (cf. [mine…box] on 9/9/79.)
